Lisa Forman: Access to Medicines as a Human Right

September 11/2012


“Lisa Forman of the Dalla Lana School of Public Health and Jillian Clare Kohler of the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy have published a thought-provoking interdisciplinary collection with University of Toronto Press which grapples with corporate responsibility for the provision of medicines in low- and middle-income countries. The book examines human rights, norms, and ethics in relation to the private sector, considers the tensions between pharmaceutical companies' social and business duties, and complements broad examinations of global conditions with case studies illustrating different approaches for addressing corporate conduct. Access to Medicines as a Human Right identifies innovative solutions applicable in both global and domestic forums, making it a valuable resource for the vast field of scholars, legal practitioners, and policymakers who must confront this challenging issue. Authors include:  Asher Alkoby (Ryerson University), Richard Elliott (Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network), Lisa Forman (University of Toronto), Paul Hunt (University of Essex), Patricia Illingworth (Northeastern University), Rajat Khosla (Demand Dignity; Amnesty International), Jillian Clare Kohler (University of Toronto), Matthew Lee (Overwaitea Pharmacies), Joel Lexchin (York University), Judith King (Centre for Economic Governance and AIDS in Africa),  and Stephanie Nixon (University of Toronto, University of KwaZulu-Natal).”
